Who is Keysher Fuller? the hero of Costa Rica who scored in the only shot at the goal of the Ticos

Costa Rica was in the news during the first day of the World Cup Qatar 2022. The Costa Rican team fell resoundingly 7-0 at the hands of Spain, equaling the worst defeat suffered in its entire history. Criticism towards Luis Fernando Suárez’s team did not wait. One of those who was most in the eye of the storm was Keysher Fuller, who was harshly prosecuted for his actions and his subsequent statements.

“It was not easy for Spain, they say it because they were not on the field,” he had said. The right back had his revenge. He scored the winning goal against Japan and put his team in the fight to qualify for the round of 16. They arrive alive to the last day of Group E, where they will have to face a Germany that has already shown its vulnerability.

With nine minutes to go in the game, the Herediano player came close to the Japanese area and with an exquisite finish ended up hanging goalkeeper Shuichi Gonda. A score that not only gave life to the Costa Rican team. It also meant his first goal in World Cups, an objective for which he only had to finish once on goal. 100% efficient!

Statistics that already had it in debt. In the duel against Furia Roja they could not make any shot, either on goal or deflected. Before Fuller’s goal they added a shot far from the fence. For this reason, the goal of the man born in the town of Limón also helped them recover their offensive memory.

The three points that Costa Rica added meant their sixth victory in a World Cup tournament. They snapped a streak of seven consecutive games without winning. The last time they got a victory was against Italy in Brazil 2014, a championship in which they made history and reached the quarterfinals.

It is not the first time that Keysher Fuller has broken the nets of the rival arch. Throughout his career he has scored eight goals, at the club level (Herediano of his country) and national team. It is one of the main characteristics of him, which has put him in the sights of several Major League Soccer (MLS) clubs.

The 29-year-old full-back made his debut in 2018 in the Costa Rican team and has played in the Gold Cup, Qualifiers and now the Qatar 2022 World Cup, where he has already registered his name.

Without a doubt, the goal in Qatar 2022 is the most important of his career. Although it also has another important and unique. On October 14, 2021, he scored against the United States at 59 seconds into the game. That target was placed as the third fastest in the entire history of the Concacaf Qualifiers.
